Accuray Inc (ARAY)
BTIG analyst Sean Lavin maintained a Hold rating on Accuray Inc yesterday. The company’s shares closed yesterday at $3.97.
“As we previewed, we felt Accuray was positioned well going into this earnings report, with shares trading below ~1x revenue and expectations set at an achievable level. ARAY turned in a small beat on F2Q19 revenue but more importantly, posted gross orders of $100.2M, more than $20M above consensus. This was driven by order strength in both Americas region, two areas where we anticipate continued, if lumpy, demand. Despite this, management maintained FY19 revenue guidance of $415-$425M and noted China orders would fluctuate quarterly. We move our FY19 revenue forecast to the top end of the range and leave our near- term gross orders unchanged but increase our gross order and revenue outlook in the outyears. An update on the Chinese joint venture negotiations is expected soon.”
